High Blood Pressure (BP) is often referred to as the "Silent Killer" because you may feel fine but it quickly sneaks up on you, damaging your blood vessels without causing pain until it's too late. This disaster strikes in the form of a weakened heart, kidney, and circulation problems that can wreck havoc in your heart, brain and eyes.
Elevated blood pressure (BP) or hypertension is a major risk factor for a heart attack or stroke. It is generally regarded as the number one most significant risk factor for stroke. More than 70 million Americans (1 in 3) have high BP, including more than half (54.3%) of all Americans 65 to 74 years of age and almost three-quarters (71.8%) of all African Americans in the same age group. Of all the people who have high Blood Pressure only about one half have it under control.
Drugs to lower BP are among the most commonly prescribed medicines in the U.S. More than 678 million BP prescriptions were filled in 2010. All the current classes of drugs possess significant side effects. One such study was published in the esteemed journal, STROKE, shows that Blood Pressure medications increased the risk of stroke by 248%. Another interesting fact – the risk of stroke went up 33% with each additional Blood Pressure medicine used.
Drugs such as ACE inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, calcium-channel blockers, beta blockers and diuretics are usually the drug of choice. Often a trial and error approach is taken and sometimes one may be on 4 to 6 medications at once. Side effects can include plummeting sodium, creatine, urea and potassium levels, insomnia, dizziness, nausea, gastro intestinal bleeding, bleeding gums, confusion, irregular heartbeat, kidney failure and erectile dysfunction. Doctors are not to blame because they often see patients who need critical immediate care. Unfortunately, many doctors do not have a basic understanding of nutrition even though changes to diet and lifestyle are scientifically and medically proven to help control Blood Pressure. These take time but the alternative is continuing down the path of medications for the rest of your life.
Recent research is showing that a special standardized Olive Leaf extract has a truly remarkable ability to lower Blood Pressure, promote balanced LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, revitalize aging arteries and boost overall heart health.3,4,5,6,7,8 The medical use of the fruit and leaves of the Olive tree (Olea europaea) actually dates back thousands of years. Early references to its healthful properties can be found in the Bible. "The fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine." (Ezekiel 47:12) The olive leaf may, in fact, possess the olive tree's most powerful healing attributes.
The secret is a compound called oleuropein that is found both in olive oil and in particularly high concentrations in olive leaves. Scientists have known since the 1950's that oleuropein has the ability to fight free radicals and support healthy blood vessels. Recent research has revealed how effectively a highly purified olive leaf extract can help promote balanced Blood Pressure, normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and optimal overall cardiovascular health.
Blood Pressure Wellness works in several different ways to keep Blood Pressure under control. Oleuropein, the active component in olive leaf, has been shown to promote vasodilatation. This is a process by which blood vessels relax and expand to accommodate blood flow through the vessels. Blood Pressure Wellness may also help enhance production of nitric oxide (NO) the messenger molecule that cause vasodilatation. Blood Pressure Wellness also helps to inhibit ACE, an enzyme that causes Blood Pressure spikes. There are additional polyphenols found in the olive leaf which act as strong antioxidants that help reduce oxidative stress which is implicated in Blood Pressure imbalance. Only special standardized olive leaf extract (containing high levels of oleuropein and extracted by special proprietary technology and then purified and concentrated) has been selected for New Spirit Naturals' Blood Pressure Wellness (BPW) product to deliver affordable and effective results. Our Blood Pressure Wellness (BPW) product contains an extra-strength 1,000 mg dose in every serving (two vegetarian capsules).
The study looked at 20 sets of identical twins with each twin assigned to a different group. Two different tests were conducted.
One group of participants were given 500 mg of olive leaf extract daily, while the control group were given only advice on lowering Blood Pressure with life style changes. Reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure was observed in the group receiving olive leaf extract, while the control group actually saw slight increases. The olive leaf group began to see improvement as little as 7 days.
